Google's Pixel 3a can be the key to the business that spreads beyond the most basic version of a smartphone company – hardware-wise. Although it always looked like Google should be able to make the best-selling smartphone with Android (since they own Android), it will never happen – until now. Now that Google has adopted a two-tier system, not just a two-dimensional system, they've tapped a market they've never really commanded before: "How can they sell this phone to this price" market.
We've been trained to believe that smartphones should cost hundreds of dollars if we bet on the best machine. We have been pushed in this direction over the last decade. If we start around 2007 when the first iPhone was released (and the true smartphone wars began), the best in the phone cost about. $ 500 USD.

The last decade, smartphone companies went from having dozens of different smartphones released each year to only having a handful, now back to somewhere. Now we are in a kind of cute place, and companies like Samsung have smartphones at any cost from a few hundred dollars just over a thousand.
Now we have Google seems to be serious about selling smartphones for the first time ever. They had to know that the first few years in the market would not destroy all competitors ̵
Now before Google Pixel 4, Google played a map that signals their intention to take the biggest names in mobile devices. They have allowed their most "magic" features to be sold in the form of a "budget" smartphone called Google Pixel 3a. They have the brand, one of the most recognizable and reliable brands in the world. They have hardware – they have a team that has been responsible for some of the most iconic smartphones in history (with HTC).
With Pixel 3a, Google's gold hit and they are striking while the iron is hot. Currently, Amazon's best-selling "unlocked mobile phone" is Google Pixel 3a in "Just Black" for $ 388. This device is promotional phones like Samsung Galaxy A10 (second in line with an almost full front display and a price of $ 134 USD) and the iPhone 6 ("renewed" sorta as refurbished, unlocked for about $ 137 USD).
This may have something to do with the offer sent to Google Pixel 3a owners this week. This offer suggested that if someone used the code in the email, both the sender of the code and the person buying the phone would get $ 50 in credit on the Google Play store.
Google is doing this effort and preaching the world to Google Pixel 4 by selling as many Google Pixel 3a as possible. They could sell this phone at a loss and still come out ahead when these users demonstrate the strength of the camera inside. At that time, August rolls up and we see Google Pixel 4, people will cluster to grab it.
